JanShatabdi window seat confusion

Hi All,
:namaste:
This is my first post at IndiaMike.
IndiaMike forums have always been so helpful to me - for queries and also for some cool timepass at office cool: by reading so many travel experiences here.

Now, my query -

Booked a CC NDLS-DDN Janshatabdi ticket in tatkal quota with 15 seats left, gave seat preference as Window.
Got a CONFIRMED ticket - C4/66/WS.
I think WS indicated Window Seat.
But, when I go through the layout diagrams here at IndiaMike 66 is either Aisle or Middle for CC. I could see the "WS" only on booking confirmation page and now its nowhere.
Please can anyone help me, I mean can there be a difference in layout diagrams here and actual coaches used by IRlwys.
Between, I was looking for a WS because I seldom travel during the day, so just wanted to see some scenic beauty outside!:D
I know this is somewhat unimportant [relax] as compared to urgent railway queries, but all you IndiaMike experts please help me getting a WS!:rolleyes:

Hello IMB and welcome to indiamike

I think I'm the only person who's done accurate seat layout diagrams on indiamike, and I would advise you to stick with that seat as it's almost certainly a window seat, the Jan Shatabdi (and Shatabdi) carriages seem to have a few different layouts, and the diagrams I've done are only examples of layouts I've seen on my travels, I know for certain that there are other seat layouts.

In my experience, WS does mean window seat.

Make sure you also try the best seat on the train, by the open carriage door (with your back against the open door).

Yes, WS means a window side seat.

Thanks a lot for your valuable suggestions.
Will stick with the WS. And surely the carriage door seat is the best and the safest :rolleyes: one!
